    A good indication is to look at the eyes. The eyes of the Dwarf Hotot look like they are wearing makeup. The eyes are surrounded with a thin band of black fur, known as 'eyebands' by rabbit judges. They are usually all white in body color, which helps make the eyebands stand out., though brown and black are accepted colors as well.  On Netherland Dwarf rabbits these eyebands are not found, and these rabbits also commonly found in a couple dozen different body colors.

My rabbit just had a litter tonight. They usually have about 2-4 kits per litter. There is is a little more responsibility,but the mother does most of the workhouse just have to make sure that she is doing her job. If she is not doing her job then sometimes you can try to put them in with another doe. One more thing you can do depending on how old they are is get cat milk replacement. It is a little work but not much if the mother does here job.

My little hotot (Pancakes) does not ever want to be held or picked up. Is this normal?

    Generally when a rabbit matures and hormones start kicking in they become stand offish or irritable, maybe even showing aggressive tendancies. One way to help resolve this issue would be to have your rabbit spayed or neutered (it takes alot of research to find a good rabbit vet in most locations that will do a spay/neuter and especially at a reasonable price so check your local shelter or rabbit rescues for recommendations). The other possibility is that your rabbit has issues with the way its being handled or it feels that its personal space (generally being its cage or litter box) is being encroached upon by humans or other animals. Researching rabbit behavior and learning to read your rabbits "body language", modifying your behavior and adjusting things around your home to appease your rabbit will better your relationship. Also, does your rabbit have an ample supply of toys to help de-stress? Rabbits may stress over minor daily activities like humans or animals coming in and out of the home or being noisey and they simply need something to preoccupy their minds with and play is just a great source of relaxation for a rabbit. Make sure your rabbit has plenty of toys and boxes to dig around in that are its personal "things" and not used by other animals (or humans). Good luck!

    No this is not normal it is probably because it wasn't handled from a young age which can result in that. There are other reasons look it up I bet you'll find something!

    I just adopted a hotot and I've taked him out of his cage but he just hops back in. Should i be worried? I leave the cage open hoping he would come out. He leans out but doesn't come out

    I know this was written a few years ago and you probably already have what you were looking for. However, there is a great breeder who carries dwarf hotot bunnies in Gastonia, NC. www.hippityhoppartiesandmore.com We bought my daughter's hotot there and he's great!

    I believe a bunny can eat pretty much anything you eat as long as it is nutricious. A whole lot of sugar or salt isn't good. The rabbit pellets provide a nutricious diet and are geared to do that. If you wish than a few pieces of vegetable (obviously carrot) or maybe a little piece of fruit. These little guys only need 1/4 cup pellets a day but they will eat anything and everything so just don't overdoo it. They do love oats though so that is probably why they love the oatmeal. Just a little - they aren't very big.

    My rabbit has had a nibble of cliff bar(with no chocolate) and a frosted flake! She also likes our baseboards! I hope your rabbit doesn't like baseboards

I own a mouse named Angelina from Petco. I'm only allowed to have a small rodent in an apartment, since I live in an apartment. I truly adore Hotot rabbits and have seen many of them at nice pet stores like Nick's Tropical Treasures Pet Store in Illinios. I really wish I could have a small bunny and I'm a kid and I know Hotot rabbits are AWESOME with kids! But I know I should be thankful for the cute adorable fancy mouse I have already. :)
